Description of this Book

Narwhal is a happy-go-lucky narwhal. Jelly is a no-nonsense jellyfish. The two might not have a lot in common, but they do they love waffles, parties and adventures. Join Narwhal and Jelly as they discover the whole wide ocean together.A wonderfully silly early graphic novel series featuring three stories. In the first, Jelly learns that Narwhal is a really good friend. Then Narwhal and Jelly form their own pod of awesomeness with their ocean friends. And finally, Narwhal and Jelly read the best book ever -- even though it doesn't have any words...or pictures!Ben Clanton showcases the joys of friendship, the benefits of working together and the power of imagination in the delightful Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review PRAISE FOR Mo's Mustache NPR 's Book Concierge's Guide to 2013's Great Reads Monster + mustache = 'Huzzah!' With a soupcon of cool.... Author/illustrator Clanton's super-simple line-drawing monsters in pastel colors perfectly communicate the big emotions of Mo's tale. The half text/half speech-bubble narrative will engage storytime audiences and lapsitters with a minimum of inflection on the reader's part. Requests for repeats are a certainty, and small ones will learn a lesson about individuality while enjoying this delightfully fun monster tale. Mo's mustache? Magnifique! - Starred review, Kirkus Reviews Huzzah! Laugh-aloud funny, Clanton's story also offers a way to begin discussing individuality or peer pressure. - School Library Journal
